Friday Freewrite #11 – Pass

August 26, 2011

Freewriting is an exercise in timed, stream of consciousness writing. It’s a fun and useful activity for writers of all types. Every week, I’ll provide a prompt as a springboard for freewriting. For more information on what freewriting is all about and how to do it, see this post.


Today’s post is a first line:

“Every time I pass by…”


I hope this prompt has stirred some interesting thoughts and ideas for you! Freewriting is inherently messy and sometimes deeply personal, but if you feel comfortable sharing your results, please post as little or as much as you’d like in the comments.

    Every time I pass by that door I remember the day that I found him lying on the floor. He was perfectly content to sleep outside on the concrete, but I made him come inside. But I could not get him to his room, so I just left him there, and when I came back in the morning he was still there, curled up into a ball. He won’t go out all the time anymore, thank god. He learned his lesson that night, when he was bested by a girl. That’s how it started. I beat him at a game of chess and he decided that wasn’t okay, so he got drunk. I tried to stop him, but he didn’t listen. Now he knows that I know what I’m talking about when i tell him to be careful.
